I gave it 9 because of the variance in volume that should be fixed, and the cut-off in the middle of the song. It was really good. I listened to the other song you did, this one is an obvious up in skill. It's way better, and the song is catchy. I've actually had this running on my computer for about half an hour now. I forgot I was going to respond, so I'm still listening to it as I'm typing. The sound is great-- you do well with orchestra-esque sounds, it sounds lots cooler than the guitar.
